I am a French national who left France at 23, spent 20 years in South-East Asia, before relocating to Finland in the summer of 2019. 

My professional background is in market research and advertising, where I ran small businesses of up to 150 people across 3 countries.  

My father was an entrepreneur, and so was his own father. I've always worked for entrepreneurs myself (the kind that gives you the keys and asks you to run their business on their behalf as if it were yours), then became a minority shareholder in an advertising agency before starting my own entrepreneurship journey. 

 

I've always cared more about others than about myself. I've developed a passion for coaching, mentoring, advising and training people throughout the years.  Combined with my entrepreneurial mindset, becoming a coach to entrepreneurs just made sense. 

Today, leveraging my wealth of experience and expertise, I specialize in freeing entrepreneurs trapped by their own bottlenecks so they can thrive. 

Here's how we'll navigate your journey to freedom and growth:

  • Advising: Expect straightforward, actionable advice on navigating through entrepreneurial bottlenecks. From practical tips and tailored training to strategic guidance, I'm here to steer you toward clarity and effective decision-making.

  • Supporting: Together, we'll take a step back to view the bigger picture, shifting focus from daily operations to your business's overarching goals. This perspective is crucial for identifying and prioritizing the strategies that drive real progress.

  • Inspiring: My role extends beyond coaching; I'm also here to replenish your inspiration. Through a curated selection of impactful content, I provide the motivation and fresh perspectives necessary for sustained entrepreneurial enthusiasm and creativity.

  • Asking: Critical to our journey is the dialogue we'll engage in—expect probing, thought-provoking questions designed to challenge your assumptions and spark transformative thinking.
